Happy October & GIVEAWAY!

Oct 7, 2015 by

          HAPPY OCTOBER, FRIENDS! This is easily one of my favourite months of the year, and it may or may not have something to do with my crazy neighbour who fills (FILLS!) his lawn every year with inflatable Halloween decorations. Pumpkins, ghosts, Jack Skellington, witches and cauldrons, you name it. Most of them light up and move mechanically too! Well, my dear ghouls and goblins, for this particular October, I am celebrating by announcing a giveaway. My beloved friend Dawn‘s debut novel entered our midst this fine year, and I want to send you a copy!     Even though YA horror/psychological thriller is not a genre I can say I ever read, I absolutely devoured this book, cover to cover. I am sure you will too, and it will make your...

That is likely because I am now used to turning my back on the fluff-alicious yumminess after a year of practice, but I did see bread and bread products everywhere, and it made the idea of grabbing a quick snack almost impossible. So what does one actually eat(!?) in Belgium and France when gluten is not an option? Well, it takes...

What’s The Big Hairy Deal?...

Aug 1, 2015 by

  Just under 5 years ago, I went from long curly locks and fringe to this in a matter of moments:     I had always wanted to try short hair before I finally went for the big chop, and I wanted to do it while I was young, since short hair seems to be the go-to cut for women of a certain age. Leave it to me to be contrary. It is kind of weird to look at these pictures because despite having wanted short hair and having kept it for many months, I don’t think of myself as a short hair gal. That girl almost doesn’t look like me. The original haircut was inspired by Carey Mulligan and this cute ‘do. Since my head/face is not the same shape as hers, my hair dresser...
